Team Thudmeizer proudly presents the Blood Angels Modification for Dawn of War: Soulstorm!

The Sons of Baal, The Blood Angels, were the IX Legion of the original Space Marine Legions under their Primarch Sanguinius. They are particularly well known for their bloodthirsty nature in battle.

The gene-seed of the Blood Angels (and its successors) is still capable of producing all nineteen organ implants that facilitate the transformation of a normal man into a Space Marine. It also has the unique quirk of vastly extending the lifespan of the Space Marines of the gene-line, and it is not unknown for a Blood Angel to live more than a millennium. The gene-line, however, is also affected by a dreadful flaw, which makes its brethren susceptible to the Black Rage and the Red Thirst.

The Red Thirst causes warriors to suffer an unusual bloodlust, instilling them with a thirst for the blood of their enemies.The Red Thirst is so overwhelming that the Blood Angels forget their noble heritage and completely lose control over themselves. It is not unheard of that Blood Angels squads abandon advantageous positions to engage the enemy in hand-to-hand combat. More often than not, these assaults turn out to be so devastating that unprepared enemy forces are simply swept away.

When a Space Marine is overcome by the Black Rage he is reborn in a world of anger, hatred, fury and nothing else. As well as Sanguinius’s memories, the Blood Angel is touched with a small portion of his unearthly power, boosting his strength and vitality to superhuman levels.
Rather than face a slow, insane death, Blood Angels will form those who have newly succumbed to the Black Rage into a special unit known as the Death Company. They paint their armour black, daubed with red crosses, signifying the wounds of Sanguinius, and are usually led by the few Chapter officers, notably Chaplains, who are able to communicate orders to these lost warriors. They are then sent out to perform the most dangerous assaults, hoping for a quick and honourable death in combat.

This mod was first announced back on the 11th November 2004 - and it's fair to say that any mod that spans this period of time has hit difficulties and this mod has fallen inactive at least twice, if not more. The old team are gone, but Team Thudmeizer got permission to continue, however our OE assistance had a crippling HDD failure and so there are clear graphical issues (Morah, Death company, other units missing animations and forcing their utility.)

This Mod has two branching tech trees featuring the Might and Wings of Sanguinius along with the famous Heroes of the 3rd Company and a twist on the familiar SM playstyle - your units are very powerful in melee, but also bezerk so use caution!

NOTE THAT YOU NEED THE OBJECTIVE POINTS MOD TO RUN THIS

Anybody...? I'm trying to play this mod with Codex (along with other combined race mods) but this one out of the bunch crashes back to Windows screen. Any suggestions? Am I doing something wrong? (Sorry for the double post, no idea why it did it as guest)

Sorry, never tested it with Codex, so can not say anything.

Ah darn, thanks anyways. I think Codex file names and BA Mod files are conflicting with each other because they're similar. Surprised Dawn of War is still alive.

I'm still working on the men of Pretoria mod, gambit on patches and ordo xenos. It's still alive.

That's good. I was really hoping to see the Dark Prophecy mod (I think it was renamed to Black Crusade or something) back in action all updated and fixed. Can't really play it because the races (mainly Chaos since it focuses mainly on Chaos) don't choose a legion and pretty much avoid building certain buildings. Although for an incomplete mod, it still has potential. This mod is nice too, glad to see it up and running again.

Any chance this mod works in Codex? Crashes whenever combined with Codex mod.

Not a bug anyone else has had! Unless you have not unpacked the locale folder right, it may be an unsupported language? Have you combined it with anything else?

Hey bro, i gotta say this. You did an abso-f****-amazing job with this. I made a long term pause with DoW and i reinstaled this few days ago to try out one of my fav chapters. I have to say i am completely amazed at what you've done. All congratulations for doing this mod in the way you did. A few of you guys doing these mods are making this game better and alive beyond all limits. Keep up the good work and best of luck O:)
